“Lumineers” isn’t just the name of a band. Lumineers are a way to make your teeth brighter and look better. They have a whole host of benefits. In multiple ways, they can make your smile better than it’s ever been. By that same token, they can even return your smile to a more youthful glory. That being said, not everyone is the best candidate for Lumineers. Some would be better served by veneers or other methods. In this blog, we’ll go over some of the benefits to Lumineers as well as some of the drawbacks. Of course, to get the best Lumineers in Los Angeles, the Celebrity Dentist is your best option.
Lumineers in Los Angeles
“Lumineers” is one of those names that, when you hear it, you might think “OK, those will make my teeth look brighter” without knowing exactly what they are. They’re actually super-thin veneers. As thin as you might think they are, imagine something even thinner. Then, you might get close enough to how thin they actually are. Lumineers are made from what’s called “Certinate porcelain.” Even though these Lumineers are incredibly thin, they’re strong. They can last on your teeth for a long period of time. You don’t have to worry about them breaking down or anything. The durability and longevity is just one of the benefits of Lumineers.
Non-invasive Path to Brighter Teeth
One of the most popular features of Lumineers is that they don’t require surgery. You don’t have to get your teeth cut up or anything like that. Lumineers are simply placed over your teeth. That’s a literal fact, not an exaggeration or something: the Lumineers are placed over your existing teeth, making them brighter. So, that means you don’t have to go through a painful surgery and difficult rehab period or anything like that. All you have to do is simply come in and get the Lumineers put on. The entire process doesn’t take long at all. In fact, it usually only takes two visits for the Lumineers to be put on. That can get you the bright, beautiful teeth you’re looking for while saving you time.
You can Always Change Back
Since Lumineers are placed over your teeth, they can be cut off easily. This isn’t the kind of process where once they’re on, they’re on forever. A strong majority of the people who get Lumineers put on love them, but as with all things, some people find better teeth brightening methods that they would rather explore. In that circumstance, we just cut the Lumineers off. That’s it. You don’t have to go through some long, drawn out removal process. You don’t have to worry that your Lumineers can’t be taken off or something. They’re a more convenient way to find the teeth brightening method that best serves your needs.
Less Money, Less Pain
Veneers can make your teeth brighter, but they can also be a bit expensive. Lumineers don’t cost as much. Now, on average, they do tend to make your teeth a bit less white and bright than veneers would. Indeed, our Dr. Mobasser often recommends that patients go through a teeth whitening process before the Lumineers are put on. However, Lumineers will still make your teeth brighter. They just typically won’t make them as blindingly, overwhelmingly white as veneers can. Of course, they’re so much less involved than the veneers, so there’s a trade off there as well.
Lumineers are a perfect way to get brighter teeth while making sure that your bank account has a bright outlook, too. You don’t have to worry about spending as much money to get the great teeth that you’ve always wanted. Another benefit to Lumineers is that they won’t cause you a lot of pain. Other methods of making your teeth better can be more effective, but they can also open up the possibility of dealing with nerve damage from your teeth, too. With Lumineers, there’s minimal to no possibility of damage to the nerves of your teeth. Those are some of the main benefits to Lumineers: they cost less, they’re reversible, and they have less possibility for pain and harm than other methods.
When your teeth aren’t as bright as you’d like them to be, it’s natural to get frustrated. It can feel like there’s no way, even if you brush religiously day in and day out, to get your teeth as bright as you’d like. However, it is possible to have a bright, shiny smile that lights up a room. Dr. Mobasser loves sitting down with prospective patients to figure out the best way for them to get the smile they’ve always wanted.
